Incidentally, from Wednesday afternoon till Thursday morning, the Income Tax Department also raided a hotel owned by Bobby at central Kolkata. However, there had not been any report of recovery of cash was reported in the case of Hossain's residence, 'bidi' factory, and rice mill.
Confirming that the Income Tax department has sought documents relating to his tax returns, income, and expenditure details, Hossain claimed that the notice has not mentioned that he will have to personally be present at the department's office in Kolkata. "I will be sending all the related documents through my lawyer," he said.
However, no reaction was available from Bobby on this count.
Meanwhile, the Trinamool Congress has stood by Hossain in the matter. State General Secretary and party spokesman, Kunal Ghosh, said that Hossain, besides being an MLA, is an established businessman too. "Is there any rule that a businessman cannot keep some cash at his residence," he asked.
